why are all dress shoes so horribly uncomfortable? the more expensive the shoe, the more uncomfortable it is.

Just watched your vid on jeans, and you nailed it. But I was slightly disappointed with your shoe recommendations. First...the black loafer. I've spent years wearing loafers, and I had my Eureka! moment while shopping at Saks OFF Fifth. The Saks Fifth Avenue Magnanni loafer in dark brown has a Gucci-like buckle, only more subtle. It also comes in black and dark blue. (The buckle has to be brass or silver. And a matte-finish metal ibuckle is a big NO!) This loafer fits like a glove, is sturdy, wears well on city streets, yet feels very light when walking. This loafer immediately makes you look and feel sophisticated with dress pants. I've walked all over Mamnhattan in these, and a few people have actually asked where I purchased them. It also dresses up jeans perfectly. No other loafer I've ever owned hugged my 11 1/2" feet like these. Best of all---and very important when buying loafers---it doesn't slip off the foot while walking. Nothing feels worse than when your heal slips out of the shoe in a loafer. I like mine a little tight when new. If it stretches at all, it never stretches too much. A good-looking loafer should have a sheen, but it shouldn't be too glossy. And the leather should be on the "hard" side, NEVER soft. My next recommendation for loafers is a pair of Magnanni-like penny loafers...sleek, no stitching on the "penny" sides. The oxblood loafers you wore with jeans looks fantastic. I'd also consider a penny loafer without the penny strip. To vary your look, try a pair of brown suede loafers---no stitching, but WITH the penny overlay. Now, I was raised as a preppy, and I always wanted to ditch the loafers and wear shoes that made me feel hip and more "alpha.". Boots changed my look...completely. If you're going to wear boots to work, a pair of hard, black leather dressy boots with a sheen, calf height, will make you sexy. Paired with the Gap, indigo, slim-fit stretch denim, it ups your alpha factor by several points. The Tom Ford Gianni Leather Cap Toe Chelsea Boot sets a good standard for boots that work with dress pants. They also look great with jeans. I'm 6'1", but I still like a little elevation with boots. Why not. The Frye/Chelsea boots are versatile. Sorry to be so rigid about shoe color, but black is best. Dark brown suede also works. Any other color, especially gray, is an emphatic NO! I will never warm up to wing-tips or brogues. I get it that they're stodgy hip, but they'll never make my top five. I know I'm a bit obsessed with dark brown suede, but this is the only color that looks good to me when it comes to brogues. I used to wear the slip-on soft leather loafers (the ones with soft, nubby, rubber soles, aka car shoes). Nothing wrong with the suburbs, but they look kind of yuppy suburban. They offer little to no support. They stretch and slip off the heel. Clark's boots remind me of a Vermont college student or a 1960 folk musician. Suede bucks make me look I just arrived from the farm. Fabric shoes, especially denim loafers, are a big turn off...on anybody!!! One last thought...A good shoe color can either continue the line of your body (from pants to shoes) or it can break the line of your body (dark pants/jeans with light brown shoes). If you want to look tall and trim, a black (or dark brown) shoe or boot is best. As for sneakers, I try to avoid anything clunky. Colorful or neon-soled sneakers don't work for me. Worst of all, white sneakers look medical. I'm still looking for the right sneaker.

I'm a normal human being who doesn't go to weddings and business meetings every week of my life. I'm not wearing dress shoes every day walking around campus.

The Shawshank Redemption led me to believe that nobody pays attention to shoes. "I mean, how often do you actually stop to look at a man's shoes?"

Women all the time. If you’re a grown ass man still wearing vans one of two things will happen. They will think your a teenager or they will assume that your a broke loser

LOL I'm 38, struggling with fashion and style decisions and now I just realized the question is not fashion sneaker (the all time fave) OR some leather casual (what I can mostly afford) but BOTH. And that I should have never felt weird for equally loving to sport a pair of Superstars and a pair of nubuck boots... now the question is to level up and find the other pieces to fit the whole picture together. :D BTW thanks alpha, you are awesome.

If you're a HETEROSEXUAL male, the data proves that women are attracted to men with BIG WALLETS(financial stability/financial upward mobility) is #1....NOT your clothes. WHY?. Cause CHICKS want to DRESS THEIR MAN....and they want THE DUDE to have the money to do just that. Take it from a MAN who's had more chicks than dicks this dude's had in in his mouth.....and there's NOTHING wrong with that either!!...HONESTLY!!!(got kick ass gay friends I love like bothers!). Your CLOTHES wont get the chicks. Save your $$. Hit the gym and gain confidence to talk to any woman you feel is attractive. Working out: setting goals and acheiving them will do more for meeting the babes than wearing nice clothes. And I GUARANTEE YOU; she will want and love to RE-DRESS you as SHE wants you to look. And if you picked rhe right woman, you'll like it too and more so because it makes the one you love HAPPY!!!. Ta-Da! Now, off to the gym(which BTW is THE BEST place to meet women!).

Being in high school, and gigging in a band almost every other weekend, a pair of black and white Converse high tops are a must for men. Also a solid pair of combat boots.

Could you do this list for people with wide toe boxes. It is hell shopping for dress shoes when your toes splay out and need the widest part of the shoe to be the toe box not the the toe joint.

Love your videos. I always had a thing for boots and I bought a pair of RM Williams cowboy ankle-high boots with cuban heels. Here is the surprising thing. I bought it for style and thought it would be uncomfortable. Not so. It is very stylish and comfortable and worth every penny of the high cost.

Did he tie that tye himself ? Brown shoes with black vest? No,0 for 2..seriously, I like him and he's is wrong on alot of fashion tips..loafers are lame and almost feminine..and that old man sweater..Really doesn't go with his dual earnings..0 for 4 In this video. He likes wearing black with brown ALOT,in my day that was a HUGE NO-NO. WHAT DO YOU THINK.? I LIKE HIM ,AND HE IS COOL,INFORMED, BUT THIS VIDEO IS NOT ONE OF HIS BETTER ONES.

Hey alpha, I really like those pumas. What style in particular are those (the name of the shoe itself)? There are several on the website and I don't want to pick something that I might not like. Thanks

What is your opinion on Merrells for fashion sneakers? I have three pairs (brown, black, and blue), I think they're awesome and comfortable, but I enjoy muted and subdued colors when it comes to shoes.
pawbiter (1 year ago)
I'm in my 60's and your advice is spot on. It applies to men my age as well as to the younger generations.Buying the same pair of shoes in brown and in black is like buying the same tie in various colors. You don't save any money doing that. I am 5' 5" 150 pounds and just bought a pair of wingtip chelsea boots. I wish I had bought these boots decades ago! A great addition to my wardrobe.One more thought. Don't hesitate to shop for shoes when they are on sale. You might be able to find some higher-end good quality shoes that normally might be out of your price range.
